I'm creating a space scene in MAX with mental ray and I need to render an animation, save it in RPF and then import it in After Effect.

The problem is about stars in the background.

I've added them in the background using an environment map "Stucco".

The problem is that every time that a frame is rendered the camera changes its position but the stars randomly changes position so I have little white dots moving in the background in a crazy way.

I cannot simply add in After Effect a static background scene with stars because my camera is moving.

How can I obtain a realistic stars background for an animation with moving camera?

Thank you

I found out this interesting video:

So I inserted a starfield in a video post event. Really good result.

I read that I could also insert a sphere mapped with stars but I don't think it's a good solution.

However I'm quite sure there's a way to do this with enviroment map. Ideas?
